2015 Clos Du Val Napa Cabernet Old School Quality and Price

Buy 2015 Clos Du Val Napa Cabernet Old School Quality and Price

Clos Du Val is an old school winery that has built a reputation of beautiful wines and great Napa Valley Cabernets. I tasted the 2015 Napa Cabernet probably six months ago and frankly, was underwhelmed by the wine. A bit tight, not a bad wine just closed up. So I popped a bottle recently, thinking the wine should have showed better. Well I guess either my palate was off or the wine wasn't showing well or it just needed more time in the bottle. Either way, the wine has really changed! The reviews are pretty good but I suspect the next time around the scores will go up (and the price too). The wine is delicious; great structure, soft tannins, good fruit and incredible balance. (I'm taking some home). Old school quality, old school price, grab a bottle, grab a steak, heck grab an old movie. You'll be happy. Stay safe, stay healthy and drink well. Tim Alberdi Redneck Wine Company
